I just wandted to make something invisible in an animation

reduce reflection to 0
increase filter to 1
change color to 1 1 1

Some objectes really disappear,
but the font based on CHARS.INC,
there are some mysteriouse ghost reflexionx in the air.

Just solved the mysterium with phong.
Reducing phong to 0, and the mysteriouse ghosts
disappeared

This effect does not depend on the object type, but on its finish. If 
the finish has specular or phong highlights (either explicitly or by 
inheriting from the default finish), you'll see those even if the 
surface is otherwise invisible.
